Panduit has said that the SC OPTICAM pre-polished fibre-optic connectors provide field termination in less than half the time of field polish connectors. In addition, with it re-termination capability yield rates are approaching 100 per cent.

Designed for behind-the-wall and main, and intermediate cross-connect installations, these fibre-optic connectors feature a dual-cam design that secures both the fibre and buffer in one action to ensure consistent terminations and to reduce termination time. In addition, the factory pre-polished fibre stub endface eliminates field polishing to reduce installation costs, labour, scrap and the number of tools required, said the company.

A single OPTICAM termination tool is used to terminate the pre-polished connectors. It features an integrated visual fault locator for visual indication of proper termination after the cam step has been completed. Together, these features are said to virtually eliminate operator error and deliver yield rates approaching 100 per cent for lower installed costs.
